Need to access Signature field tool from browser - Adobe Acrobat Windows

I have Acrobat 6.0 and am filling out PDF forms within a browser. I would like to be able to add a signature field when I have a form open in the browser, but the tool to do this is not displayed in the toolbar and I can't find an alternate way to access it. Is it even possible to access and use the signature field tool when a form is open in a browser?...

    You'll need to add a signature field to the PDF before placing it online. The user will then be able to sign the blank signature field.

    Thanks, George, for your reply. What we really want to do is fill out the form in the browser application and then flatten it so the data cannot be changed and the file size is smaller for archiving; THEN put a signature field on it and sign it. If we sign before flattening, we flatten the signature, too, and lose the active signature validation and its corresponding information. If we don't flatten, we not only risk someone changing data in a field, but the file size remains relatively large, and that's a bummer for archiving. From the browser I don't think we can access form security controls either, so file size aside, using security to prevent changes to data is not an option.

    Any ideas for how to achieve our goal?
